How To Choose The Perfect Valentine's Day Gift January 30 2015

Whether you are celebrating Valentine's Day with the love of your life or simply want to show someone special how much you care, here are our top tips for choosing the right his and her gifts.

Choosing a Valentine's Day Gift For Him

1. Your gift should be appropriate for the level of your relationship.

Some guys can get scared off by important gifts if you have only been going out for a few weeks. If you have only just started seeing each other recently a safe option is to pick a fun card that lets them know you really like them but don't intend to start stalking them!

We have a range of fun greeting cards like the You Are My Sunshine card which are playful and amusing but won't smother your new beau.

On the other hand if you and your partner or husband have been together for many years he might be expecting a bit more than a card on Valentine's Day. It's important to choose a gift that reflects his taste and personality. We have a sensational range of cufflinks which allow you to pick the colours and designs that really suit your man's style. From our trendy Grain Cufflinks (featured here below) etched from thick aluminium, to our glass Bushtucker Cufflinks there are a pair to suit every guy, young or old.

2. Choose a gift that you know he would like, not just something you like.

Sometimes it can be easy buying your man a shirt that you would love to see him in but this might not rock his boat. Think carefully about the things that you have seen him get excited about and stick to a gift that you know will make his face light up.

If your partner fancies himself as a bit of a coffee connoisseur he will love this wooden Coffee Tamper handmade from beautiful Australian Red Gum.

3. If you just want to give a cheeky gift

Our cute Koala Body Massager costs less than $10 and is sure to create a chuckle or two!



Choosing a Valentine's Day Gift For Her

1. Romance is the key.

Ok guys, Valentine's Day is the one day where there are no excuses, you need to be romantic! Jewellery is an ideal gift option for February 14, but make sure you select an item which is appropriate for your stage in the relationship. If you are in a new relationship these Heart glitter earrings could help you say "I really like you" and if you want to take the romance up a notch you can pair them with this sparkling Heart glitter ring.




 2. Cosy Up!

The woman in your life will probably appreciate a box of chocolates and you'll definitely get in her good books with a nice bunch of flowers. But why not say I love spending time with you, with some stylish cushions to cosy up on the sofa with. We have a very wide range of cushion covers including these Australian handmade works of art from The Spotted Quoll. Not only are they luxuriously plump and soft, they are also 98% recycled! 

Once you are cosy on the sofa with the cushions and chocolates you can do it - watch a Rom Com!



 3. Put a smile on her face

Don't worry it doesn't have to be a grand present and if you struggle to to find the right words to say why not say it with the "You Make Me Smile" poster. It's a great way to show that special someone that you care and unlike a box of chocolates this $20 poster will last beyond Valentines day.
